After the advice issued by the University Grants Commission, now Colleges and Universities in Delhi are gearing up to celebrate “surgical strike” day on September 29.
M. Jagadesh Kumar, the Vice-Chancellor of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has said the university will observe ‘Surgical Strike Day’ on September 29.
He also said “We would like to listen about their experiences and understand the situations they face while defending the country. This is a great opportunity for us to pay our tribute and gratitude to the defence forces.”
Jamia Millia Islamia, public relations officer, Ahmed Azeem, said they had already informed their NCC team to organise events on September 29. “The NCC will plan and organise the event. They might take out a parade and demonstrations,” he said.
Rudra Pratap Singh, student, Faculty of Law, Delhi University, said: “The surgical strike we are talking about was perhaps not the first one. Even the previous governments claimed to have executed successful strikes in their era. Due to this, it would be wrong to term September 29 as the second anniversary of the same.
